I am a Mary Kay cosultant and have made them as a favor for my guests with little hand creams inside them. They are super cheap but time consuming. However you can have a girls night and get some help BYOGG (Bring your own glue gun)! All you need is toilet paper rolls, what you’re putting in them, the wrapping and the poppers. Cheap from Micheals! After you get the hang of them they are easy!

I love the look of them but I dont know if I would do crackers…just because I’d be like “Uh…ok, where is the cheese or spread?!” lol

I Love the Look though! Maybe you can do an alternative to crackers, like cookies or something?!

I made them for our wedding, and yes they are going to be worth it, and yes I would make them again. I am sure our guests will love them 🙂

Here are the ones that I made, if you want to look at them.

A Christmas Cracker is as much a cracker for eating as a firecracker is. They are a British Christmas tradition and usually have a small treat and toy inside.

There is a bee on here who I believe made these recently.  Noritake….?

@sfchick: You are very welcome 🙂

As long as you wrap them in something weddingy, they will become wedding. We had these every Christmas at my grandparents house, so I wanted to include them. The poppers pop very nicely when they are not on the cracker. I haven’t tried one with the cracker because I didn’t want to ruin my work. The thinner the paper that you use to wrap with though should give you the best result. I used cardstock, so we will see…

I just wrapped the toilet paper roll with the cardstock, tied one end with ribbon, filled the open end, and then tied the other end shut.

I didn’t make them for my wedding, but me and my mom make about 40 of them every year for Christmas eve dinner and they’re a big hit.  We have so many pictures of everybody wearing their crowns (which are totally optional… but fun). 

We usually do them with TP rolls and wrapping paper.  You can buy the snappers at Michaels usually. 

For contents we usually do the crown, a joke/fun fact, some wrapped candy and various little toys.
